Everyone knows the famous expression “the eyes are the window to the soul.” So what do eyes that are sunken, tired, puffy or weary say about their holder? At North Shore Center for Facial Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery, two of the most popular procedures are lower and upper eyelid surgery, more technically referred to as a lower or upper blepharoplasty. Chicago board-certified cosmetic surgeon Dr. Anthony Geroulis explains why: “Surgical intervention for upper and lower eyes is most often the first procedure performed on men and women. For many people, the eyes begin to reveal the tiredness and aging of a person before any other parts of the face. It is also a procedure that once performed,most often never needs to be performed again in a lifetime.” The nature of the delicate skin around the eyes means that it is typically one of the first areas of the face to reveal our true age. As we age, a discrepancy often develops between how we feel on the inside and how we appear to others. Undergoing an eye rejuvenating procedure can help to bridge this often frustrating and disappointing gap.
